Lindsay Lohan Arrest Warrant Issued, Bail Set at $100,000
A judge issued a warrant Thursday for Lindsay Lohan’s arrest after the actress missed a mandatory hearing. Bail was set at $100,000.
The 23-year-old actress was due in court for a progress report on her probation stemming from two arrests in 2007. Her attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, said Lohan’s passport was stolen while she was at the Cannes Film Festival and was unable to return to Los Angeles in time for Thursday’s hearing.
“She did, in fact, have airline tickets,” Holley told the judge. “From our standpoint, there is a valid reason for her not being here today.”
Holley said Lohan would be back in the United States by Friday evening. Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel wasn’t satisfied, and said that Lohan has a history of missing scheduled appointments.
“If she wanted to be here, it looks to the court that she could have been here,” Revel said.
The judge revoked Lohan’s probation, issued the arrest warrant and imposed several conditions should Lohan make bail. She will be prohibited from drinking any alcohol, required to wear an alcohol-monitoring bracelet and submit to random weekly drug testing.
